In addition to using energy saving components in their data center, 321enterprise’s hosting provider has partnered with the Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) to offset 100% of the energy used in the data center by purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). The majority of the RECs will be sourced from the Bowersock Mills and Power Company’s hydroelectric facility in Lawrence, Kansas. This hydroelectric facility is certified low impact by the Low Impact Hydro Institute (LIHI). Annually, 321enterprise’s hosting provider purchases 17.5 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power, which is enough clean energy to power over 300 US homes per year.
